Around the second half of the fifteenth Antonio Termine, powerful aristocrat, Palermo magistrate and judge of the High Court, fixed his residence in Via Bandiera, promoting the construction of an imposing crenellated building with tall tower. The house of the magistrate soon became a reference point for the people of Palermo; even the presence of the flags on the tower that stood out, for centuries one of the highest in the city, gave it its current name to the street that since the Middle Ages is one of the main roads through the town circulation.
In 1748 the prestigious Gothic palace is sold by Termine principles Baucina to Marassi Dukes of Pietratagliata who first decide to restauralo and expand it (entrusting the task to the well-known architect of the Senate Sicilian Francesco Ferrigno) and later, in 1762, to update it according to the stylistically fashion of the time (by commissioning a significant decorative intervention to John del Frago, a leading architect of Rococo Palermo, and the most important painter of the eighteenth century in Sicily, Vito D’Anna, to execute the ceiling frescoes).
In 1808 due to the sudden disappearance of the last Marassi, the palace was inherited by his only daughter Maria Cirilla that brings with it, along with the title of duke, her husband Luigi Alliatas, third son of the Prince of Villafranca.
Fabrizio Alliatas Duke of Pietratagliata, his descendant, you must taste the neogothic intervention of the early decades of the twentieth century that in addition to affecting the external facades freed from vintage baroque balconies, donated to some of the elegant environments present palace decoration neo medievalist. Other important personalities of the Sicilian artistic culture are the protagonists of this last speech among which the three architects Ernesto Basile (undisputed protagonist of Modernism Italian author of Deputies of the Parliament building), Francesco Paolo House (heir of the most prestigious dynasty of architects Palermo) and Francesco Valenti (superintendent of monuments of Palermo between the two world wars). The succession of three principals families (Term, Marassi and Alliatas) has allowed the realization of one of the most important monuments of Palermo as part of civil architecture, through which you can learn much of the history of Sicilian art. Many styles, such as the Late Gothic, Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassicism and the Gothic Neo, are present in the building where you can feel the deeply moving experience of living history through many epochs, as in a time machine.
The grandeur and severity of the main facade, past the great portal, is mitigated by the inner courtyard made by a lush vegetation that covers the walls which stand in the mullioned windows, mullioned windows and round windows of flamboyant Gothic style.
Reached the main floor you are greeted in a warm and welcoming entrance hall adorned with a wooden decoration where stands a dramatic staircase, all stylistically consistent with the courtyard. From this area you enter the large living room fifteenth extraordinary example of neo-Gothic taste of leduchiano mold. Continuing we pass from the fifteenth to the eighteenth century breaking into the first of three markedly Rococo environment that welcomes us in a riot of stucco, gilding and frescoes by Vito D’Anna (1760). In the large ballroom is an impressive Murano chandelier Cà Rezzonico ( ‘700) to 99 arms, which is the largest in Europe, which is the precious ornament of a magnificent frescoed ceiling by Vito D’Anna, and when a prestigious eighteenth floor Neapolitan majolica.
By a curious coincidence, Biagio Licata Baucina prince, descendant of the family who built the palace term, he married Princess Signoretta Alliatas owner of the property inherited from a line Alliatas Marassi Pietratagliata.
Thanks to this marriage the palace has never changed hands remaining for six centuries in the same family.
